I've been working on a few cross stitch pieces.
The first is a Lizzie Kate design called Boo Club. A whimsical Halloween banner stitched on linen, in appropriate colours for this festival.
The second is a Jim Shore design, The Twelve Days of Christmas. A joyful piece depicting scenes from the old Carol, of similar title.
Before Christmas I ordered a chart, "Song of Songs" 6:3, to stitch up for DH for Valentine's Day, guessing it would be completed and framed in time for February 14th. No such luck! As the saying goes...'Hell is paved with good intentions.' As of the latest mail, there is still no sign of the chart. I made an executive decision to re-order not only the chart, also the specified fabric & floss. The chart will not arrive in time for the occasion planned, however, maybe it can be a gift for our anniversary, later in the year.
ADDENDUM: The chart arrived three months later, and went via South America, Chile to be specific. I passed the chart onto a fellow stitcher who has shared her charts liberally, with me.
